1 Draft data - do not cite or quote EEPS Benthos RMP Status & Trends sediment monitoring added benthos at 27 stations in 2008 for implementing SQO. 2.EEPS Benthos Workgroup will meet twice this year to review the benthos LOE for Bays and Estuaries and further develop the mesohaline benthos LOE.

2 Draft data - do not cite or quote Causes of Sediment Toxicity Sediment TIE Study ( ) The goal of this study is to refine newly developed estuarine amphipod sediment Toxicity Identification Evaluation (TIE) methods for eventual use in evaluating toxic samples from RMP S&T samples.

3 Draft data - do not cite or quote Sediment TIE Study Design 1.Identify 12 potential sites 2.Sample in the winter 3.Screen sites to locate two toxic sites 4.Conduct the TIE study at these sites

4 Draft data - do not cite or quote Sediment TIE Study Status 12 sites were sampled and tested Only Mission Ck was toxic enough for a TIE study We even sampled a 13 th site
